Kim Jong Il is dead! Hundreds of thousands turned out to morn him and they wept and cried because of their loss.

A few days later his son was elevated to become the supreme leader of North Korea; “Respected Comrade Kim Jong-un is now supreme leader of our party, military and people,” said Kim Yong-nam.

The mourning was quickly over and now the rejoicing has begun. While the people give their allegiance to the new leader, the old one has joined the rich man in Hades and is making a similar request like unto the rich man for a drop of cool water.

Some of the mourners put on quite a show while others were somewhat passive. Several news media suggested that those who gave it up with great exuberance were only acting and playing a part.

This brings me to consider the ability of some to express their inner feelings to a greater demonstration than others, and some can put on a display even though they aren’t real feelings. Using the vernacular of today they were giving it up for the departed old Kim as well as for the new young Kim.

We Christian folks go to our worship service at church and “Give it up” for Jesus and our Father. This is a case of quality over quantity though both are apropos.

A good question to ask your-self is where is this adoration coming from? We can train ourselves to blend in and do the do and look pretty good on the surface, but true worship comes from our spirit. One of the simplest yet most informative statements ever made concerning worship is found in John 4:24 For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth."

We may attain to an intellectual understanding of worship, but true worship comes from a deeper source, our spirits. In order to do this it takes preparation. It must become a lifestyle.

Another probing question that Jesus put forth is; “What think ye of Christ? There were several answers to that but when I ask myself that same question I’m not sure if I am capable of answering it.

I question if I am capable of comprehending either the Father or the Son. Words I am familiar with cannot describe the majesty of GOD. My lack of full comprehension of the totality of GOD limits my ability to worship as I should.

The day will come when the blinders shall be removed and we shall see HIM in all HIS glory.

1John 3:2 Dear friends, we are already God's children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is.

 Psalms 104:4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
